Pair charged with drug offences...
Sky Ferriera

Sky Ferreira and DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith have been arrested.

A high profile couple in American music, Sky Ferreira and Zachary Cole Smith's romance appears to have ended up in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As Pitchfork point out, The Daily Freeman reports that the pair were arrested in the United States over the weekend. Seemingly Sky Ferreira and Zachary Cole Smith were stopped by police at 12.30am on Saturday (September 14th) and charged with various offences.

'Everything Is Embarassing' singer Sky Ferreira was reportedly faces "misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest" while Smith was "charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, one count of possession of stolen property and one count of aggravated unlicensed driving, all misdemeanors".

According to the Daily Freeman, DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith was also charged with "the violations of unregistered motor vehicle, driving without insurance, unlicensed driver, and having an inadequate exhaust system."

Police reportedly claimed to have found Smith in possession of "a plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin" while Ferreira "was found in possession of Ecstasy."

The Daily Freeman adds: "Police said a registration check showed the license plates on the truck were stolen and the driver, Smith, was wanted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding vehicle and traffic warrant."

Both Sky Ferreira and Zachary Cole Smith were sent to Ulster Country Jail.

UPDATE: Zachary Cole Smith posted a response to the case on DIIV's Twitter last night. Arguing that Sky Ferreira is completely innocent, he said: "what you're reading is a police blotter, not the outcome of a court case. these cops wanted to fuck us, and they did. sky did nothing wrong."
